                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It may sound cliche, but nobody believed in me!  Even my own manager didn't
think I could amount to anything.  My kill came in the Dark Arena my very first
fight.  Now, here I am, twice-defending Duelmaster.  I am neither challenging nor
avoiding.  Bring your best, Jade Mountain!

Teaser II

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JADE MOUNTAIN.  MVP award for DESTRUCTIVE 
ENERGY?  CRITICALS' proud of him after beating WINTER ROSE and getting 21 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  WINTER ROSE's match with DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY cost her a 
loss of 12 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think TEASER 
II should let DEADLY FORCE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can 
CRITICALS' DEADLY FORCE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

All -- Sorry for the late personals, I got Turn 508 the day before 509. -- Guido

Locutus -- I think I better enjoy that while I can, eventually you're going to own
me. -- Nareen

Jade Lotus -- Hmm, a win for me, beaucoup skills for you.  Not too bad a result
either way. -- Nareen

Deadly Force -- Y'know, after hearing Nareen talk about you, I am a bit surprised. --
Teaser

Winter Rose -- Thank you! -- Teaser

Dud2 -- That was a little unexpected. -- Archenax

One-four, and Stone Hammer WON?  That is so TOTALLY unfair!  Hammer is such a DOLT.
I seriously protest. -- Winter Rose

Teaser II -- I know, it's so TEMPTING to tease, but in the long run... probably not
the best way to go, you know?  People start sneering. -- Winter Rose

Nareen -- Well!  I see that the overture you made to me (I'd call it a pass) before
the fight was FALSE.  Totally false.  Bah. -- Jade Lotus
P.S.  But the skills are good, and I thank you for those.

Iron Handed -- I guess you're one of those weird types who goes around breaking
bricks and stuff with your bare hands, right?  Just so you know, the smarter people
use hammers. -- Claws of Night

Angel -- You may not be angelic, I'm pretty sure you aren't, but you're cute.  How
about dinner and dancing tomorrow evening? -- Ko-Hain

Maori -- Way to GO, guy!  Let me buy you a drink or three! -- Stone Hammer
